He was on Graham Norton via Zoom on Friday. I think BBCA is usually a week behind, so should be on BBCA next weekend?

Everybody dies, some people just get royally farked over and have to do it slowly and painfully.  Billy seems to be doing a fairly decent job of handling the fact that he's one of those that is getting farked over, though I hope when my time comes I don't give up my rationality and come to believe in an afterlife with better things waiting for me.  I have trouble having trouble with him for going that route, though.

I'm sure that sounded profound to you, but it sounds to me like you're saying "I hope he doesn't become one of those darn Christians and dies in deep despair knowing anything he did doesn't matter because life is worthless and we're not allowed to think otherwise."

I'm SURE you didn't mean it that way, but I do agree that I don't want any parasitic cults hiding behind Christianity scam Billy either.

You took the words out of my pen. Before I give up my rationality, I have a plan for precisely how I want to die. You are an insightful Farker. Thanks.

I always remember fondly, and repeat it every Christmas, his tale of his mate that had a whole bunch of dachshunds, one of them female.  He asked what happens when the female goes into heat.  "Simple, I just put her upstairs."  Billy was confused as to how that would stop anything from happening.  "Did you ever see a dachshund try to make it up a flight of stairs with an erection?"

A lesson for us all.

As someone who's dealing with an elderly relative who's losing their cognitive faculties and expressed the same sentiment, if he's ready, he's ready.

love Billy Connolly!  article did not seem to include any link to his artwork tho~
Billy Connolly - 42 Artworks, Bio & Shows on Artsy
love that he wrote a book; i doubt 400 pages are anywhere near enough.

He looks pretty happy in Florida.  I wish him nothing but a happy retirement.  I'll mourn him when he's dead and not before.

Glad you've got it all figured out smart guy. When you're farking dying and everything and everyone is going away and you're farking terrified it can be comforting. Surprised you didn't say "invisible sky wizard"

Saw him on his last American tour.
It was an enthusiastic celebration of being alive.
We went in not knowing his situation and he addressed it up front.

The important thing here is that you've found a way to tell everyone how superior you are.

That has to be the funniest mental image I've had in a long time. ("Hi!-yi-yi-yi-YIHEEP!)
